    There'll be more coming, don't worry.

    OT: I can't wait for this - I might finally grab myself a 360 and get that badboy in a pimped out watercooled XB01. :D

    I must say I actually prefer the look of the elite to that, I don't like the front grill, bit meh IMO.

    i like the idea of after market cases for the 360, but im sorry, if it destroys my rrod warranty.... without some significant evidence that this case prevents the probleme entirely, im keeping it in its boilersuit for the time being.

    i also agree, the elite looks better... with so many grilles on that thing, the dust intake is gonna be immense!

    From what Doug says, it's the mobo warping thanks to the X-clamps on the heatsink when it gets too hot. Replace those and it works fine, keep it cool, and it shouldn't warp. :)

    I could only find one water block/kit for the 360... the Innovatek X-Matic. Any chance you guys could do some benchmarks... Stock 360 In Original Case vs. Stock 360 Cooling in Lian-Li vs. Water cooled in Lian-Li ?

    http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_2643.html => these guys are in the UK and seem to carry it. Not cheap though :(

    From the videos of the new dash update I have seen, it appears you will be able to copy the game to the HDD, you only need to have the game disc in for verification then will load from the HDD

    OMG:

    That is so amazingly, incredibly, astoundingly BORING.

    All that waiting, and build up, and this is the result.

    Sheesh, wake me up when someone makes an interesting case.

    im sorry but you shouldnt have to buy a new case for a console to make it more reliable. if people just want the xbox to looks "cool" then fair enough but if someone was to buy this for the sole purpose of avoiding the RROD , its wrong and customers shouldnt have to deal with this :/
